    I am interested in getting a camel coat (80/20 Wool/Camel or 100% Camel) with a trimmer cut throughout the body. What are my options online. Do I have to purchase fabric online and then take it to a tailor or are there any makers you can recommend? This would be the ideal choice for me.

    Any names you can recommend? or do you mean some online retailer like Mr Porter. I didn't see any camelhair coats last Fall at all on their website.

    I'm confused - if you're buying a camelhair coat from Mr. Porter, how is it bespoke?

    Reid and Tailor, to be honest all famous names would do camel hair cloth, better be careful with the weight to ensure it is warm enough for the intended use.

    be careful. a camel will coat will have two humps.
    but if its a dromedary you get only one hump.

    My preference is the British Warm style which can be made in camel's hair. It usually comes in melton. Per your request, it is trimmer
    and un-belted. I used to have one when I lived in a cold climate:

    A bespoke camel coat can be quite pricey.

    A bespoke British Warm would run around $4K in Piacenza Baby Camelhair
